    Do you have the iPad Smart Cover?

    This has to be fitted first before that option becomes visible.

    I've never had a smart cover and my Settings show the option under Auto-Lock and Passcode Lock. This is on iPad 2 on iOS 5.

    If I remember correctly, Tim has an iPad 1. On my iPad 1 on iOS5, it's as Tim says; the smart cover option isn't showing in Settings.

    OP, do you already have a smart cover and the option isn't showing? Maybe try resetting your iPad? If you don't already have a smart cover, maybe you could borrow one or try one at a store, see whether it will trigger on the option?

    And yet you're among the sites most prolific posters. All hail the trailing edge of technology. :)
    BTW I've participated in many forums over the years and this one's fun AND useful.
